Indian District

To the eastern side of the city center is The Indian District, also known as the Indian Quarter. The Jumah Mosque is reputably the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Two markets are of note, the Oriental Bazaar on Albert Street (between Queen and Commercial) and the Indian Market which is on the far side of the M3 at the west end of Victoria Street. This area has become home to Zulu herbalists selling 'muti'. For traditional medicine and rituals, head for Russell Street Extension where these sellers congregate.

The Old Fort

Set in fine gardens, this model, Old Fort is a reconstruction of the basic defenses set up by the 27th Regiment, the Inniskiling Fusiliers. The original site was constructed to help protect the soldiers and the British population of the town from the Afrikaners who came and besieged Durban following their victory at the battle of Congella, in 1842. The Irishmen held out for a month when relief arrived from Grahamstown brought by the epic ride of Dick King. The military museum inside the fort is also a wonderful attraction. The Old Fort ranks as one of the National Heritage sites in Durban

Durban Botanic Gardens

Durban Botanic Gardens are regarded by many as some of South Africa's most beautiful city park lands. In 1850, the original curator, Mr. Mark Johnson McKen, laid the groundwork for what it is today. Specialties include the Earnest Thorpe Orchid House, a Herb Garden, a Sunken Garden and the Garden for the Blind. There is an information center and a tea garden. There are live concerts held in the park regularly, throughout the year, and audiences are welcome to bring along a picnic basket. Multiple concerts take place in the hall and the event spaces in the gardens. Workshops and exhibitions are also held.

Burman Bush Nature Reserve

Burman Bush Nature Reserve is a small park (about 120 acres) which enjoys interesting coastal vegetation and is crossed by three, well marked trails. A visitors' center and interesting map help to explain the special characteristics of the reserve and the preservation work it has been, and is, carrying out. There are picnic spots dotted around the park, making it an ideal way to spend a day. The parking area is secured. Within easy reach of the city center this makes a nice day or half day outing. Call for more information.

KZN Sharks Board

Most of the popular bathing beaches in Kwazulu-Natal are protected by shark nets maintained by the KZN Sharks Board. Each day, crews on ski boats check the nets and collect any snared sharks. These are brought back to the institute, dissected and studied. There are regular one-hour tours which include a peek into the enormous freezer where the shark carcasses are stored, a shark dissection, and a fascinating audiovisual presentation. There is an interesting curio shop offering sharkskin leather goods and sharks teeth. Boat tours may also be arranged (USD 15). Some of these exhibits are not for the faint-hearted.

Phezulu Safari Park

Located between Botha's Hill and Drummond, Phezulu Safari Park is highly recommended. It lies on the ridge overlooking the Valley of 1,000 hills. There is a good curio shop on site and two restaurants; try a four-wheel trip into the Valley of hills. The main attractions, however, are the interesting tour of the crocodile farm and the Zulu village and dancing show. There is also an animal farm and children's playground.
